POSTED: 02/8/13 1:16 PM

St. Maarten – The Community Outreach Mentorship and Empowerment Center (COME) was the proud recipient of a financial contribution from managing director of Seven Seas Water Franklyn Richards on Wednesday.

The center which is located on the ground floor of the Maynard Building on Longwall Road received a cheque of $2000.00 for its Seniors in Action program.

Center director Donna Wilson-Morrison received the donation in the presence of the visionary of COME Center, Apostle Leyland Sam, seniors’ program coordinator Sandra Mercelina and seniors and volunteers.

In his presentation Richards mentioned how the initiative came about through a casual meeting with Apostle Sam who enlightened him on what is being done at COME.

After receiving an official letter of request and going through the vision of the center, Richards said he realized the impact the facility would have on the community and was therefore moved to lend a hand.

“Being here at the senior citizens program I am elated by the great job that COME Center is doing. This is a special program and I pray that one day that I too will be seated among you,” Richards said.

He indicated that the program will help the seniors to keep busy and remain strong; physically and mentally.

Apostle Sam thanked him and the Seven Seas Water Company on behalf of the foundation and volunteers of COME Center for his invaluable contribution.

The Senior Citizens in Action meets every Wednesday from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm for a time of devotion, exercise, games, handicraft and dancing. Meals are also provided.

Community Outreach Mentorship & Empowerment International Foundation (COME Center) is a non-profit organization which was launched to provide a holistic, therapeutic and conducive learning environment for individuals in the community, with a direct focus on providing seminars, classes and feeding programs, which will address some of the ills in our society.  The intended result of all initiatives, will be a stronger autonomous individual, and by extension, a stronger community.

COME Center will soon commence its literacy program called the ABC Literacy Program.  Assessments are currently being conducted for persons interested.

The literacy program aims to reduce illiteracy on the island of St.Maarten/St.Martin, empower individuals with functional literacy and life skills in order to combat unemployment and poverty, provide the basic skills necessary to pursue further educational goals and to effectively utilize 21st century technology to better function in today’s society
